4. Teamfight Tactics future

Speaking of mobile, while League of Legends itself doesn’t strike me as a game that’s best played on mobile, it’s newest game/game mode, Teamfight Tactics would certainly work as a mobile game. Not only is the pacing more suited for the casual mobile player, the fact that it’s a free-for-all game removes the risk that you could irritate a teammate by losing cell service.

But, beyond just the mobile option, I would also expect for Riot to spend a good bit of time on what new champions could be entering TFT in Set 2 (they announced recently that they’ll be rolling out Set 2 for Season 10), so it would be appropriate to tease them here. Riot could also drop some knowledge on the rumored TFT esports scene that is expected to launch in 2020 such as how the league would be run!

5. Esports changes

Now this one is pure conjecture on my part, and there’s no indication or rumor that it will happen, but since this livestream is airing right after Worlds ends it might be a good opportunity for Riot to give some insight into any changes they might make to the League of Legends competitive scene. There have been some complaints about Riot’s Worlds format creating unbalanced groups and suggestions for how to improve it. Maybe Riot could let us know if they’re planning to make any changes to the biggest esports competition on the planet going forward?

There’s also the possibility that Riot could announce things like the new LCS line-up for next year (losing franchises such Echo Fox and OpTic) and perhaps some future-thinking ideas. Could the LCS/LEC be expanding beyond 10 teams? Could they change the schedule? Tonight might be a good place to reveal this.

6. The champion roadmap

This one is almost definitely the case, as Riot has confirmed they will be unveiling the champion roadmap on the live stream tonight. This will include a look at the two reworks we’re likely to see next (Fiddlesticks and Volibear) along with the next champion to be released (rumored to be Senna). I would expect that this roadmap would also include some champions that they intend to rework in the future.
